This study presents the outcome of a multidisciplinary approach to the infants with atopic dermatitis. Forty six patients, 40 males and 6 females, afflicted with atopic dermatitis, aged 3 months-2 years, were examined. A careful history was taken for each case to identify possible allergic disease and particular attention was placed on the relation between food assumption and appearance of lesions. The association of diet, dermatological therapy, elimination of environmental stimulus where possible, treatment of lesions and pruritus and good psychological support enable the Authors to obtain 57% of complete remission of atopic dermatitis. In 43% improvement was observed.

Abstract

This study presents the outcome of a multidisciplinary approach to the infants with atopic dermatitis. Forty six patients, 40 males and 6 females, afflicted with atopic dermatitis, aged 3 months-2 years, were examined. A careful history was taken for each case to identify possible allergic disease and particular attention was placed on the relation between food assumption and appearance of lesions. The association of diet, dermatological therapy, elimination of environmental stimulus where possible, treatment of lesions and pruritus and good psychological support enable the Authors to obtain 57% of complete remission of atopic dermatitis. In 43% improvement was observed.
